Shape: Changing
Duration:2 minutes
Black mass that looked like Starlings flying in formation at 35 to 40 thousand feet .

Flying from Edmonton, Canada, to Huatulco Mexico. About four hours into the flight, I looked out the window of the Boeing 737-300 to get a visual of the topography below, but when I looked out the window I notice a dark mass about 2 to 3 miles out from our plane at the same altitude. (flying at between 35 and 40 thousand feet). I notice that the mass was changing shape, it was like Starlings when they are swarming.

I tried taking a picture but it looked like a black splotch, just had my I-phone. Now my question is, do Starling fly at that altitude? And have you heard of anything like this?
